Let’s Make A Peppermint & Cranberry Seed Foot Scrub

As we inch into sandle season, I don't know about yours, but my feet could use some tlc after not seeing the light of day since September;). I like to whip up a batch of foot scrub this time of year to help exfoliate and renew the appearance of the skin on my feet as well as get rid of any calluses that have formed on the bottoms of my feet.

Exfoliating will also open up your pores and allow them to absorb any sort of lotions, balms or butters that you apply to your feet better. Plus if you are someone who self tans then exfoliating your feet is a must to help the color take more evenly on your skin.

This scrub uses a few different exfoliants in it as the skin on our feet tends to be tougher than that on other parts of our body. I personally wouldn't recommend using this scrub on any area other than your feet for that reason. Along with the exfoliants, I will be using a little bit of oil to add in some moisture and make the scrub easier to apply as well as some Peppermint essential for it's clean refreshing scent and cleansing properties. I originally saw this recipe on and have been making it for myself for several years now. I do add in some sweet almond oil which is not in the original recipe but I have found it to be a good addition to the scrub. I know you will love it as much as I do once you whip up a batch for yourself!

For this recipe you will need:

Airtight Container for Storage

To make:

  1. Combine your baking soda, epsom salt, cranberry seeds and pumice sand in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Be sure to press out any lumps that may be in your baking soda or epsom salt.

  2. Next add in your tablespoon of sweet almond oil and peppermint essential oil and then mix thoroughly again.

  3. Now add your ingredients to an air tight container such as a mason jar and that is all there is to it!

  4. Store in a dry location when not in use.

To use this scrub, I like to first soak my feet in warm water and then apply the scrub and rub in vigorously. Wash off with warm water and then pat feet dry and apply your favorite lotion or butter to moisturize your feet. Throw on a pair of socks to hold in the moisture overnight and you will be amazed at how much softer your feet are in the morning.
